American Rye with the Old World character

In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought a farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named Whistle Pig Farm. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskeys. It took a while, but they have now grown to become a true “estate producer,” which means that all aspects of their core Whiskey production are on site from growing the grain to bottling the spirit. They produce three award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood Rye Whiskeys.

This means quality production by MGP that is aged and finished at WhistlePig Farm in Port, Sauternes, and Madeira wood casks.

The key to the unique flavor character of WhistlePig 12YO is in the combination of the casks. After spending 12 years in new American oak casks, it is then finished in three European wine casks: Madeira, Port and French Sauternes.

Smartasss Corner:
What the heck is "whistle pig" anyway? Even though all Whistle Pig Whisky labels are adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, "whistle pig", groundhog and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

Ratings & Reviews
Lawrence
Lawrence,
This whiskey is definitely an acquired taste...that I haven't yet developed. I am not a fan of aging whiskey in various wine barrels. I want my whiskey to taste like whiskey and my wine etc. I'm embarrassed to tell anyone how much I spent on this bottle. Wish I could get my money back or a credit to spend toward something I would drink. Oh well, live and learn.
Jennifer
Jennifer,
I wish I could buy your bottle!
Joshua
Joshua,
Vanilla and spicy and everything nice. Excellent rye.
 
Michael
Michael,
I only got to first try Whistle Pig within the last couple of years out here on the 9th island. It quickly became a staple that is complex yet easy to enjoy and not completely overbearing. When Old World appeared I quickly got my hands on a bottle and was certainly worth the 30 extra bucks.

Amazing flavor

Oh yes! This Rye is fantastic!
 
Dwight
Dwight,
One of my favorite Rye Whiskeys, period. Not only incredibly smooth, but with a host of complex flavors from beginning to end. Now if only it wasn't so pricey...
 
Kyle
Kyle,
One of the best Rye’s I’ve had to date
 
Bob
Bob,
Our favorite...we tasted and immediately drove to liquor store to purchase our first bottle...we try to keep several bottles at home...hard to find and hate to run out.
 
Mark
Mark,
Probably the best rye I ever had. Extremely smooth and easy to drink. Definitely worth the price. Will buy again.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
I really like this. It's smooth and has a great taste. This may become one of my 'go-to' Ryes.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
The only Rye I have ever liked! I wouldn’t mind having a bottle of this in my home bar!
 
Madison
Madison,
This is one of the few whiskies that after one taste I immediately know I would like to buy multiple bottles. This is, by far, my favorite rye whiskey. Admittedly, I'm a beginner to rye, but I prefer this over most bourbons, and maybe even a few scotches (but if anyone asks I never said that last part.)

Alon,
Sweet but not too sweet, nice spice, nice bloom, easy aftertaste. Overall an outstanding drink, a pleasure to drink neat or any other way you'd like.
 
Brian
Brian,
This whiskey has a great nose! With a luxurious mouth feel. The alcohol content is just right to warm you up on a cold evening. It has notes of honey and oak on the front, with tobacco and spices on the after taste. It’s a little pricey for me, but a very nice bottle to have for a special occasion!
 
Gary
Gary,
Excellent - typically direct people here after they've had Basil Haden's - again, to show them what just a little bit more money gets them in terms of quality.

Alice,
Tasted for Robert Burns Night. Very smooth, slightly sweet, good sipper on the rocks.
 
Michael
Michael,
It was ok. I expected more flavor. After setting out for about 20 min it does offer more flavor. Kinda like wine.

All time favorite!

ONE OF THE BEST RYES I HAVE TASTED
 
Clinton
Clinton,
Love the mix of finishing barrels - really finishes great due to them, personally I think the Madeira is what sets it apart. Priced high but for those of us who enjoy a little sweeter different finish while still holding onto that rye up front then buy this and you won’t regret it lol

Alex,
It's a great whiskey and of course living in Vermont, I had to try it. I absolutely loved it but I don't think it's worth the price.
